Linda Cardellini Net Worth $3 Million

To begin with, she was educated at the Saint Francis High School from which she matriculated in 1993. After taking acting classes, Linda Cardellini pursued the career of an actress which would eventually add huge sums to the overall size of her net worth. It is worth mentioning the fact that she graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a degree in Theatre, in 2001.

At the beginning of her career Linda moved to Los Angeles. Linda participated in the game show “The New Price Is Right” in 1994, and then two years later she appeared in the series “Bone Chillers”, in which she played Sarah. Then she made several appearances in other series including “Third Rock From the Sun” (1997), “Pacific Palisades” (1997), “Clueless” (1997), “Kenan & Kel” (1998) and “Boy Meets World” (1998 – 1999). In 1997 she appeared on the big screen, landing a role in the comedy “Good Burger” followed by a small role in “Dead Man on the Campus” (1998) in which she formed a couple with Jason Segel. This was a good basis to her net worth.

Cardellini spent the summer of 1999 in Europe as part of a touring production in “Lancelot”, a Dutch tragedy of the fourteenth century. Cardellini had her first noticeable success when she created one of the roles in “Freaks and Geeks”, during the season 1999 – 2000 – as Lindsay Weir, a female student in the midst of an identity crisis, the actress won the positive response that subsequently catapulted her to fame. In 2002, Cardellini starred in the adaptation of “Scooby-Doo”, which gave life to the character of Velma Dinkley. She repeated the role of Velma in “Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed” (2004). In 2003, she joined the cast of the medical drama “ER”, as the nurse Samantha Taggart, a role she played for six seasons until the end of the show. Moreover, she worked in such films as “Legally Blonde” (2001), “Brokeback Mountain” (2005) and “Grandma’s Boy” (2006). In 2007, she created the character Clara Forsythe in the miniseries “Comanche Moon”. Aside from acting, she voiced Ursula in the video game “Gladius” in 2003, and Cordelia in “Lollipop Chainsaw” in 2012.

In July 2013, she was nominated for the Emmy Award as the Best Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her work as Sylvia Rosen in “Mad Men”. In 2015, she participated in the movie “Avengers: Age of Ultron” in which she played Laura Barton, the wife of Clint Barton (Hawkeye). The same year she starred in the comedy film “Daddy’s Home” directed by Sean Anders which grossed $240.4 million at the box office. Soon, she will be seen in the upcoming biographical film “The Founder” directed by John Lee Hancock, which will be released in 2016.

Finally, in the personal life of the actress, she was in relationships with the actor Jason Segel and with director Nicholaus Goossen. Since 2011, she has been in a relationship with Steven Rodriguez with whom she has a daughter; they have apparently been engaged since 2013.

Quotes

#Quote
1You know, the hard thing about audiences not liking what a character does is that they sometimes take it out on the actor personally. That's something that you know when you become an actor or actress, but it's always hard to deal with when it actually happens.
2When I was a kid, Scooby Doo, Where Are You! (1969) was, hands down, my favorite cartoon. Even when I was older, when I was in college studying and I needed to tune out for a while, I'd watch "Scooby Doo".
3I was extremely close with my parents. Breaking away from that is a double-edged sword: It's something you need to do, but it's hard to cut the apron strings.
4I remember when I took the role on ER (1994), I thought, "I haven't really been able to play a working class woman. I've played girls, I've played funny, but I haven't played a working class woman. That sounds like something I'd like to do".
5One of my favorite things to do is not to speak on screen. In theater it's different because there's a lot of emphasis on language - it's a different medium. But that is one of the most wonderful things about film. A person's face can say so much more than their voice can.
6I like diversity; I want one character to be very different from the next. I love to live with a character for a long time if I can, but I like one character to be different from the next.
7I have sort of the career where, if you are a fan, you've been following me for a while, and you really like something that I've done, so meeting those people is always a really gracious experience.
8There are not that many jobs as an actor where you don't get to know what your character will be doing from episode to episode.
9One thing I like about trying to write is that I can possibly write myself a role. Otherwise, you're at the mercy of whatever roles are out there that people are willing to give to you.
10I always thought I was a little shy, especially compared to my brother and my sister, but I guess I was always the kid doing performances in the front room.
11People who have no idea it's me when they first see me playing something, and later they realize, 'That's her from whatever it is,' it's a great compliment that they can forget.
12Yes, I'm very close to my family. And being that close to your family, I think you also struggle with how to become your own person.
13The one thing about being on ER (1994) that has changed is that I'm more easily recognizable.
14I think I'm going to spend some time learning how to be a first-time mom, and then I'll go back to work.
15I think in real life most of us don't know how to communicate our deepest feelings very well.
16I think everyone feels lost at times during their high school years.
17I love to work on a set whether it's mostly men or mostly women, but there's something about being in a community of women that changes the energy.
18Being raised Catholic myself, I think people who are Catholic tend to carry a lot of guilt. It's almost a joke.
19After I finished ER (1994), I wanted to concentrate on re-examining what kind of actress I am and taking time for real-life things.
20I just got back from Switzerland, which I've never been to. I went to Switzerland and Amsterdam.
21I had a really scary pregnancy and a very difficult delivery. My daughter and I are lucky to be alive.
22Before I could talk, I would try to sing.
